Continuing in verse 1, we see another interesting detail. 

Isaiah 40:1 'Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.'

The phrase at the end of the sentence says: 'says YOUR God!' Here we see how the Lord confirms to His people that He is their God. He does not simply say: 'Says God!' He adds the word 'YOUR' to the equation. So now, not only do we know that we belong to Him, but in a wonderful way, He is ours. We can know an even greater sense of belonging in the fact that God is our God, He is YOUR Lord and God. Let me remind you that HE is the Lord YOUR God. 

Isaiah 43:3 'Because I am God, your personal God!' (The Message Translation) 

Your God is still in control of all things and your God knows what you are facing and going through, and He will be with you! 

This is an amazing story, as God intersects the lives of the people, and begins to speak hope. 

Isaiah 40:2 'Speak tenderly to her, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD's hand double for all her sins.'

The Lord tenderly speaks to His people giving them a hope and a future. It is not a booming voice out of the heavens like a trumpet or a bolt of thunder with lightning. 
Notice that He speaks tenderly to His people. He gently steps in and speaks words of comfort and reassurance. The Lord consoles His people. He wants to do the same for you, He wants to step into your 'world' and your situation, and console you, and comfort you with the hope that only He can bring. The Lord actually identifies the fact that there has been a struggle and there has been suffering, but it is about to end. The promise of restoration is given and that promise includes a double blessing for the future. 

Isaiah 40:2 'she has received from the LORD's hand double...'      

The Lord is here, right now, to comfort and encourage you. The end is in sight and the future looks promising because He is the Lord your God.
